This is an old and ugly building both from outside and inside. Probably constructed in 70ies. Room and linen was not clean. Food was bad too and you do not have any options around the building. I've been taken there by the local partner and checked out (run away!) the next morning. The company that made the booking has paid... More

Since I reviewed this Hotel last year when it unfortunately closed down while I was there , I have since been back on two occasions. I can therefore report that the Hotel has been fully restored to its previous condition.The staff are very friendly and try to ensure your stay is to your satisfaction.

The first night the A/C in my room exploded and started sprinkling hot water and I got several burns as I tried to get of the room. I received no apology or deduction on price--that's kind of hotel this is.
